From the Desk of the Community Lay Director:
Wow, where has the time gone?
I just finished a great Thanksgiving celebration (Georgia Bulldogs won their game), put up the Christmas tree, and now am getting ready to welcome December.
Our December Christmas Gathering will be at Wesley United Methodist Church this Friday, December 1
. We hope to see a lot of you there to share this special time of the year with members of your Emmaus Family.
We have not seen some of you in a while. Bring your covered dish and join us.
It’s time to decide on the Spring Walks. Your Board will meet on December 2
. You need to let us know your opinions about the Walks by speaking to us, sending us e-mails, and by turning in those treasured applications.
With God’s direction we will make the best decision!
I have shared with you my concern for the future of our Emmaus Community. I have given my testimony about how important Emmaus is in my life, how it affected me 22 years ago, and how I try to share with others the Emmaus Experience. I pray every day that God continues to show our community what our future is.
We have received your votes for the new Board Members. We will tabulate them, get in contact with the applicants, do a little shuffling, and have the announcement for you very quickly.
I am pleased to turn over the Board Chair position to Phil Scott. I feel that after prayer, God led him to accept this position. I look forward to the direction he and the Board will take our Community in 2018.
This is my last article as your Board Chair. It has been my honor to help our community in this position. I have tried to honor God by seeking his guidance in all that we have done.
Have a very Merry Christmas this year. Remember to spend time with your family during this holiday season.
Come on 2018!
